Crossing the Border

The caribbean side of Panama and Costa Rica are known for Banana plantations. Back in the late 1800’s American Corporations were growing bananas in this region for the USA. They built a train line to be able to transport the bananas. This photo is of the train line crossing over the border of Panama and Costa Rica. It is not used today. The bananas are now shipped out of Almirante instead.

Kookaburra sits in the….

I went for a walk along the Bega River one morning and found a couple of Kookaburras sitting in the Oak tree eyeing off the food on a picnic table. They were waiting for the family to leave something behind so that they could enjoy some also.

New Years by the River

I took the opportunity to get away from the big parties and celebrations of New Years this time. I went down to Bega River and watched the sunset and the moon rise. I wasn’t the only one down there. A few people were fishing and camping along the river.

Waters Recede

In January 2016 there were two floods across the Jellat Jellat Flats when the Bega River burst its banks. I took this photo two weeks after. It takes a long time for it to recede. As the water recedes, it leaves the land brown. The water that is now left will evaporate.

Mountains of Li River

I spent a day traveling along the Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo. The day was raining. Most of the mountains were hidden by the low lying cloud. The day wasn’t going to be the best for a boat cruise. It turned out really well though. The low clouds created a mystery and added drama. This is one of the many photos I took between the rain. Most of the time I hid in a corner on the boat trying my best to dodge the rain and keep my camera dry. I did learn that a shopping bag is a goo way to stop the rain. There were not plastic bags in my bag that day. Continue reading “Mountains of Li River”
